As far as I know, only Peugeot (through Kemwel) or Renault (http://www.renaultusa.com/SelectRe.asp ) offer leases. They include a delivery and drop-off fee if picked up or returned outside France. The smallest Peugeot (a 207 1.4 liter engine) starts at $1200 for 20 days in June exclusive of delivery charges so that I doubt that it would be cheaper than a rental such as Economycarrentals.com.

Stay away from LOCAUTO. They have lots of tricks.
I have rented an economy car from Locauto two weeks ago.
I picked up the car on time and return it back on time.
Just 1- 2 km before I returned the car at Rome Fiumicino airport. I fulled the gas tank and received an invoice. Then I drove 1- 2 km to the car rental office. Sometimes, the pointer of the gas tank on the front panel reacts slowly. The pointer did not showed ‘FULL’ at the time of return. I told the boy working for Locauto that I had the receipt. He was insensible and rude. He did not accepted the receipt and told met hat I have to pay a fine. As I had two more hours of time, I drove back to the gas station. The man working at the gas station opened the hood of the car, disconnect the cable of the car battery and then reconnect the cable. The pointer began to reacted correctly. He told met hat this is a TRICK that some car rental companies do.

OK already. You don't have to bring up every old car rental post to add your complaint about Locauto.

MAJOR problem with Avis at the Florence Airport. Avoid at all costs. Have used Sixt several times in Italy, France, and Germany and Gemut. Been happy with them. You will either never find a automatic and convertible and if you do you will pay a fortune. Automatics in Europe are hard to come by. You options will be greater if you can do a standard transmission. Good luck.
